Sustainable Transport And Training: The Me-Mover

by: Moon Apple
sustainable transport and training  the me mover | Upload

Recently I walked in a small beach town in the Netherlands (Kijkduin), and I met some representatives from the Me-Mover company, Run on Wheels (Ridderkerk). They had some of these excellent 'bicycles' on display and offered me the opportunity to try one.

Sustainable Transport And Training: The Me-Mover

It was an amazing experience. A totally different way of peddling which not only exists of 'pushing down' with your feet and legs up also to lift the pedals. It takes a little to get used to the carving mechanism which makes it possible to lean up to 45 degrees in curves. But after ten minutes the Me-Mover feels if you use it already for years. 

It's easy to take it with you in your car or when making a train ride. 

  • An engaging and highly innovative solution. - Inc
  • Combines the high-intensity workout offered by a step machine with the zip of a bicycle. - Gizmag
  • The Me-Mover is a trendy new way to commute or just enjoy the environment around you. - Desire This
  • Me-Movers are awesome! - TripAdvisor

Bicycles? New, Compact, Step-Driven Sustainable Vehicle

A step machine on wheels, Me-Mover takes just minutes to learn, and to delight in the advantages: better ergonomics and posture, visibility, steering, and exercise. Our unique, balanced three-wheeled design offers an entirely new way to ride, standing, and stepping in an easy, natural manner. At any pace you choose – walking, jogging, or biking speeds – you'll enjoy improved control, balance, and visibility. 

This Danish design breakthrough is, quite simply, the first set of wheels designed for all the ways we move in cities, from busy streets and park trails to flea markets and bike lanes. The Me-Mover isn't just a new human-powered vehicle, it's an entirely new category, bringing together remarkable advances in personal transport and training – for commuters and casual riders, tourists, and triathletes.

Our team of engineers and architects developed the Me-Mover in Copenhagen

Urban Transport! Who It’s From, Who It’s For?

n. For urban mobility, you won't find a better testing ground or a population more savvy and critical about pedal power and design sophistication. It's only now, after five years of proving ourselves in Denmark, that we're bringing Me-Mover to the world.

Kickstarters, this is where the fun begins 

  • Walkers - Go further, and see more, on the Me-Mover.
  • Runners - All the benefits of jogging, but with enhanced core training and without the impact.
  • Cyclists - Better ergonomics and posture, visibility, steering, and exercise.
  • Skiers - Carve your turns and stay fit year-round.

Me-Mover Transport: How Does It Work?

Cars and bikes are brilliant, but to get moving in the city, this new category has outstanding advantages. That's because Me-Movers are:

  • Smaller - A triumph of compact design and agile steering, Me-Mover can glide around obstacles and safely navigate in crowds. No parking? No problem. It folds in seconds to a remarkable 18 by 13- inch (43 by 13 cm) footprint.
  • Stronger - From gentle exercise to intense interval training, Me-Mover brings a full-body workout anywhere, anytime, at any intensity you want. Heading to the store? On the Me-Mover, you choose the pace, from an effortless stroll to full-on cardio exercise.
  • Safer - Ride the Me-Mover in your natural, standing position. Not only does this strengthen posture, it puts you a full head height above everyone else, seeing further, riding safer. Me-Mover's unique three-wheel design is so stable that you never have to dismount, even at stoplights. Perfect for sight-seeing!
  • Simpler - Easy to learn and use, the Me-Mover is also a breeze to maintain. The advanced, multi-speed transmission is neatly sealed away and can be serviced by any bike shop.
  • Sustainable - Transit choices are usually made in one split second, for one reason: convenience. That's why the Me-Mover is so green. Small, safe, and simple, it's easy to take with you everywhere. When personal transit is this handy, it becomes second nature to burn calories instead of fuel.
  • Seamless - Whether navigating a crowded shopping street, racing to work, or browsing a farmer's market, the Me-Mover is a joy to ride at any speed, flowing perfectly with the city, and your active lifestyle.

With no worries, you get around in different situations. The carving mechanism lets the Me-Mover lean up to 45 degrees in curves.

Me-Mover's Future

Unlike makers of bikes, cars (and smart phones and...) we don't believe this year's model should make last year's obsolete. That's why Me-Mover is designed as a modular system. If you get excited by the new options we're developing - an electric motor, a cargo loader, and more – you don't need a new Me-Mover. Simply buy the components you want, and upgrade your current model.

  • The cargo-bike add-on: enables users to haul up to 35 kg (75 lbs) of cargo, such as a dog or groceries, in the foldable front loader.
  • The electrical add-on: the electrical support lets you travel longer and faster than ever before! It will also be beneficial to those who want to build a new healthy habit, but need a push to get started.
  • The quick-folding handle: with this easy to use the folding handle, your Me-Mover will be collapsible in only one second – handy for boarding trains or busses when in transit!

Me-Mover Transportation

Here in Scandinavia, the idea of a sustainable life is as much about people as it is about the planet. One central part of being green, we believe, is outwitting the obstacles that keep people from being active and physical. We love the kind of interconnected world that grows when people can easily travel - not in cars but under their own power - between family and friends, school and shopping, work and play. Me-Mover is all about bringing this active Scandinavian lifestyle to the world.

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
